Lastly, a popular drink in Hong Kong that is readily available is Milk Tea. Something about the fat content in Hong Kong’s rich milk makes this beverage taste unique. To me, the ingredients battle each other for dominance. Caffeinated tea and creamy milk mute the strong flavors of both to produce something entirely different together – an intersection between tradition and modernity that represents Hong Kong as global player on the culinary stage.

Another day of exploring L.A.’s coffee culture, except this time, we ventured a little further to Pasadena. With Serial Foodies regular Bianca, I visited Zona Rosa, a tiny café in Pasadena's Playhouse District. There is a paucity of tables, but at the same time, it doesn’t seem that there is ever an unbearable crowd. I recommend grabbing a seat on the sidewalk tables, because you can see the locals walk by and the theater crew pushing speakers back and forth across the street.
The coffee was great, a medium strength house bean that was perfect for a mid-morning meetup. A very strong A!
(I got the double caffe latte!)
Great company in Bianca! A local and a very great friend!
